    I'm not sure. Something may come up that is a cause for concern , be it low blood cells or something. I don't think anything stands out directly after a test is done and they say "you have cancer" without running other tests. If that was the case and cancer comes up with blood work, i'm not sure why a biopsy or something would have to be done to see if something is cancerous,maybe to see what stage something was in? then again i have no clue.

    Well yes and no. If a person has cancer it can show up in the blood but it depends on the type of cancer. I know of a man who had testicular cancer and it showed in his blood.I had a Ewings Sarcoma and nothing showed up in my blood.According to my blood results I was 100% healthy. It was just my type of tumour. I hope that helps!!
